Cathedral City Grated lines move to Doy packaging

Saputo Dairy UK has announced a move to Doy packaging for its 180g packs of Grated Cathedral City cheese, offering improved functionality and shelf presence.  

Launched from 16 November, the packaging change applies to Cathedral City Grated Mature, Mature Lighter and Mature PMP 180g SKUS.  

The move comes after consumer research conducted by Cathedral City showed that cheese buyers prefer a re-sealable zip style of packaging, finding it easier to open, pour from and re-close. Cathedral City has taken this feedback on board and updated its grated packaging to reflect consumer demand. 

Andy Thompson, marketing manager for Cathedral City, comments: “We know that for grated cheese buyers, convenience is key, which is why we’ve improved our packaging to make it easier to open, pour and re-close, keeping the cheese fresher for longer. With our new Doy packaging, on-shelf standout is also improved, making it easier for our customers to find The Nation’s Favourite cheese when shopping in store.” 

The transition to Doy packaging has been effected with no change to plastic usage of the primary pouch and a 15% reduction in SRP packaging material of the 180g SKUs. The new Doy pack flexible cheese film is recyclable via the TerraCycle Cheese Film Recycling Scheme, launched by Cathedral City earlier this year in July.  

The Grated cheese category is worth £377 million in Total Market and has seen volume growth of 15.4% over the last 52 weeks1. Cathedral City Grated is the leading brand in Grated (cheese), currently worth £8.8m1.
